Editors: Nakanishi, T., Markwald, R.R., Baldwin, H.S., Keller, B.B., Srivastava, D., Yamagishi, H. (Eds.)Focuses on the etiology and morphogenesis of congenital heart diseaseIncludes contributions by an international group of distinguished scientists and clinicians Highlights the latest research topics and techniques and includes chapters dedicated to clinical implications and future directionsThis volume focuses on the etiology and morphogenesis of congenital heart diseases. It reviews in detail the early development and differentiation of the heart, and later morphologic events of the cardiovascular system, covering a wide range of topics such as gene functions, growth factors, transcription factors and cellular interactions that are implicated in cardiac morphogenesis and congenital heart disease.
This book also presents recent advances in stem cell and cell sheet tissue engineering technologies which have the potential to provide novel in vitro disease models and to generate regenerative paradigms for cardiac repair and regeneration. This is the ideal resource for physician scientists and investigators looking for updates on recent investigations on the origins of congenital heart disease and potential future therapies.Number of Illustrations and Tables10 b/w illustrations, 99 illustrations in colourTopicsCardiologyPediatric SurgeryEmbryologyPediatricsClick Here to Buy the Hardcover from SpringerPurchase a Premium account from Download Link for Multiple/High Speed And Support :)Click Here for More books
